[DOC] RE : Arrests of Leaders of Fire Nation (Gal Undesten) and United Movement of Mongolian Rivers and Lakes (UMMRL)

Author: Tricia Feeney, Rights & Accountability in Development (RAID), Published on: 3 July 2011

I am writing to you as a matter of some urgency regarding the reports we have just received concerning the recent arrests of leaders of Mongolia’s environmental movement...The arrests on 23 June 2011 of the leaders of Fire Nation and the United Movement of Mongolian Rivers and Lakes (UMMRL) would appear to be related to their opposition to mining undertaken in areas where such activities are prohibited by law because of the risk to Mongolia’s rivers and key water sources...While the Government of Mongolia has banned the activities of some smaller Mongolian companies, foreign mining companies have been allowed to continue, allegedly because they have threatened legal action if their licences are revoked.
